A short film made by The National
Library of New Zealand about Viscount School's library:
“Viscount Unlimited” - Learning begins
AT LAST we are able to use
our new learning environment!! Although the journey to
get this project completed has been a long one, the
result is STUNNING! Now we are all charged with the task
of making some very special learning happen there. Four
teachers have moved in with their students – Ms. Shew,
Ms. O’Dwyer, Mrs. McEwen and Mrs. Gayford, and all are
very excited by the challenges and possibilities that
are in front of them. Viscount now has THE MOST MODERN
LEARNING ENVIRONMENT IN NEW ZEALAND, something we are
very proud of and excited by. Please come along to
school anytime and have a look through the new building,
and see what students are already doing there.
With new buildings opening and being used and classes being moved around you might want to look at this conversion [new rooms]
